I got a call from this number. The man would not identify himself when I asked who he was. He told me if I didn't confirm my address and postal code, he would disconnect the call. Again I asked who he was, he hung up.
Auto dial asks to confirm your name to talk to an agent. Circumvents identity process and used in the U.S. by collection agents.
Allowable calls in Canada must be by an agent to be counted not an auto dialer. Never answer any questions. Just like when questioned by police. Say that you do not answer questions and nothing else. Never use the words yes or no.
